Alumicloth - Verdict?

Postby jHands » Wed Jul 26, 2017 4:48 pm

Been shopping for aluminet and have stumbled across alumicloth. 80% instead of 70, and it's cheaper (I don't understand this?). Has anyone used it? Is it durable?

Never heard of it. If you try it, please come back and let us know if it worked.

Looks like the same thing. Likely from a knock-off manufacturer in China instead of the true aluminet brand.

If memory serves, aluminet originated in Israel and it is possible patents expired and whatnot.

Contacted seller. Aluminet is a trademarked name. Alumicloth is exactly the same, just made by a different manufacturer.

Sure, the knockoff guys will tell you it's exactly the same... did you expect them to tell you otherwise?
